Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
V800 is due out this month and it is quite possibly the best new triathlon GPS watch ever made according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"Looking at the specs it has Bluetooth Smart data transfer, heart rate in the water, heart rate variability and a host of features that the other top triathlon watches have not yet adopted," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "It also has extra long battery life and gorilla glass for extra durability."
"It is going to be interesting to see how Garmin responds to this with any Garmin 910XT updates later this year," says Squire.
24/7 and Workout Specific Measurement
Polar V800 features both highly detailed workout specific activity measurement along with 24/7 activity measurement so it bridges the gap between activity trackers and highly scientific workout measuring devices says Squire. "The ability to set user defined heart rate zones, training load with recommended recovery and both vibration and audible alerts," says Squire. He adds, "When you combine this with altimeter and barometer features, plus the ability to show ascent, descent and real-time gradient this really is quite a watch."
"V800 uses Bluetooth Smart to be able to connect to Polar's Bluetooth Stride Sensor, Bluetooth speed and cadence sensors and even Polar Look/Keo power pedals that show left/right power balance," says Squire. He adds, "The advantage of Bluetooth Smart is better battery life and the ability to wirelessly transfer data with the new Polar Flow mobile app."
Swim Features - Heart Rate In The Water
"No other triathlon watch can deliver heart rate in the water besides a Polar and it also can deliver laps, strokes and distance for pool training," says Squire. He adds, "V800 is water resistant to 30 meters and even features precise timed transitions between events with easy multi-sport transitioning."
Price and Availability
"Polar V800 comes in black or blue without heart rate for $449 and with heart rate using the Polar H7 Bluetooth strap for $499," says Squire. He adds, "We anticipate availability within the next few weeks meaning consumers can see delivery by the third or fourth week of April, but that is just our current best estimate."
